Bio

Portland metal punk assailants, Toxic Holocaust, were formed by Joel Grind in 1999 to pay homage to the raw days of metal and punk. Influenced by bands like Discharge, Venom, Slayer and G.B.H. - Toxic Holocaust create the perfect marriage of punk angst and metal aggression.  Toxic Holocaust's first full-length album, 'Evil Never Dies,' was released in 2003, followed by 'Hell on Earth' two years later. Both records featured mainman Joel Grind writing all of the music and playing all of the instruments, performing with a band only during their raucous live assaults. After achieving a massive underground following thanks to embracing a DIY attitude and extensive self-booked tours in Australia, Japan, Europe, Brazil, Canada, and the US, Toxic Holocaust signed to Relapse Records. In 2008, Toxic Holocaust put out their Relapse debut, 'An Overdose of Death.' The album was recorded by Jack Endino (High on Fire, Zeke, Dwarves) at Soundhouse Recording and was the first record where Joel Grind opted to work with another musician - Donny Paycheck of Zeke. The album went on to receive numerous accolades including Revolver calling the album, “Equal parts nuclear reactive riffage and Repo Man punk attitude!” At the end of 2010, Toxic Holocaust entered the studio again, this time at Dexters Lab. The band recorded with Toxic Holocaust/Kingdom of Sorrow drummer and engineer Nick Bellmore (Hatebreed, Phantoms, Full Blown Chaos). This album, titled 'Conjure and Command' was much darker than previous albums. "....sweetly redolent of thrash, d-beat, and raw sewage, the album simmers with tar-thick riffage, staggering breakdowns, and a corroded dose of self-loathing. If this is what Toxic Holocaust’s next decade is going to look like, bring it on" opined The Onion's A.V. Club. Following the devastating tsunami in Japan, Toxic Holocaust teamed up with Midnight for a benefit split 7".with the proceeds entirely going to the Red Cross relief efforts for victims of the tsunami disaster. Fast forward to 2013 and after almost 15 years in existence, Toxic Holocaust released a 22-track anthology that collected rarities and tracks from vinyl-only splits with the likes of Municipal Waste, Midnight, and others.  Now Toxic Holocaust's latest album, 'Chemistry of Consciousness,' will be released in October 2013. It was self-recorded by Joel Grind and Nick Bellmore, mixed with Kurt Ballou (Converge) at GodCity Studio and mastered by Brad Boatright (Sleep, From Ashes Rise, Nails) at Audiosiege Engineering. If there's one thing the punks and the metal heads could agree on in 2013, it's that Toxic Holocaust’s Chemistry of Consciousness is a rager of a record destined to top any worthwhile best of 2013 list.  Toxic Holocaust continue to road-dog across the world, having toured with Municipal Waste, Napalm Death, At the Gates, Danzig, Satyricon, English Dogs, The Casualties, and Gwar, to name a few, followed up by an impending European tour that will run throughout June.
